“I told myself to dream a wish, so I dreamed a wish, so there.

I asked my myself to dream a dream and I was shocked that I didn’t care.

I made myself see the sun for the first time. That’s fair.

I’m dreaming and seeing and wishing and hoping and loving and hugging and being a lot

and I’m sinking and praying and running and walking and jumping and shouting and keeping real quiet

’cause I know that it’s out of my hands.

It’s all out of my hands and is slowly approaching with more than authority that I am a Senior.

I am a Senior.

This is my last year of college and I am a senior.

It’s scary the dreaming and wishing and seeing and thinking because those things… fleet.

It’s empowering to know that the things that are dreams are not completely out of reach. See.

I feel this way now, scared, but I know what I’m capable of.

I have a dream of accomplishing something great. I will do something great.

Consider this a poem of encouragement”.
